In life, your most joyful times will be with family members and those you love most. Unfortunately, some of your biggest heartaches and challenges will come with family members.

We Help Unhappy Families Find Peace of Mind By Focusing on the Issues That Matter Most

The parties involved in family issues have very personal interests in the dispute. It is normal to want things to go their way. The question is, do the facts of the case side with them?

The Family Matters Law Firm helps you through the process of family issues, including:

Find Peace of Mind with Divorce Outside of the Courtroom

When you think of divorce, perhaps you envision bitter courtroom proceedings. However, your divorce does not have to be this way. It is possible to resolve disputes without going to trial.

Mediation is a great place to start. In mediation, a couple hires a third party to preside over their negotiation process. It is similar to going to trial but in a more relaxed setting. Mediation offers several advantages.

  1. A mutual agreement about the various issues makes the divorce proceedings smoother.
  2. Unlike a trial, with mediation, the evidence and discussion do not become public as they do in the courtroom.
  3. Mediation costs less going to court.

Sometimes, a judge will order a couple to try mediation to settle their disputes.

Let’s Figure Out the Most Efficient and Effective Way to Resolve Alimony Concerns

Alimony is often an issue when couples divorce. This form of financial support can be court-mandated from one former spouse to the other. Depending on the situation, the amount of alimony a person must pay an ex-husband or ex-wife can be nothing, significant, or somewhere in between. It is not uncommon for one or both parties to contest alimony. It is one of the most debated issues in divorce.

Florida calculates alimony based on the need of one party and the other party’s ability to pay the other party. There is no fixed amount. It depends on the situation of the people involved after separating. The idea of alimony is that the spouse earning less deserves to continue with the same quality of life enjoyed while still married.

Determining alimony can get ugly and put you through tremendous stress. However, you do not have to be married to the fight. Instead, work with an experienced family lawyer to help you through the process. Contact us at The Family Matters Law Firm to get started.

Find Peace of Mind by Securing Your Child’s Future with Child Support

Unlike alimony, which can vary significantly from case to case, child support payments have strict statutory guidelines. Both parents are responsible for providing for their children even after a divorce. That includes the necessities, support for any medical condition, educational opportunities, and other expenses related to giving the child a healthy home.

Determining the amount for child support is challenging. Several factors are considered to calculate the cost. It is best to work with an experienced family lawyer in negotiating fair child support.

Guiding You Through the Adoption Process with Ease and Experience

Couples who cannot have children of their own often turn to adoption as an option. Other couples may desire to adopt for different reasons. Regardless, though exciting, adoption poses challenges. It often creates stress and anxiety for couples while draining their time and financial resources.

You must prove that you are deserving parents to adopt a child. That includes creating a supportive environment, working with agencies, and communicating with the birth parents to pave the way for the adoption. Adoption demands much of your time and can become quite complex.

Does this all feel overwhelming? The Family Matters Law Firm can guide you and your spouse through the process of adoption. Contact us today to schedule a meeting.

  • The most effective, intelligent and caring divorce lawyer in Miami.

    Emily Phillips successfully helped me to resolve a highly bitter divorce case with an excellent outcome! My ex was unreasonable and only out for blood and revenge. Her attorney only cared about taking my money and padding his pocket by filing lawsuit after lawsuit. He didn't care about the effect of litigation on my child. Emily put a stop to the shenanigans. She is a bright, intelligent, caring, reasonable, and most importantly, a very effective lawyer!
